Snow, sleet and ice and it's still bad out there. No one is advising driving.

Frayser and Midtown have the most outages. Crews are working to get your power restored.

The sand trucks are out there too but again stay off the roads unless you absolutely have to be out there.

To the east of the Mid-South in Nashville much of the same; roads are covered in ice, schools are out and there are power outages. Thousands of customers are in the cold and dark.

In Dickson County the electric company there is reporting that outages could be worse than the December 2013 storm and it could be days before all electricity is restored.
